Tri-Sentinel (Earth-616) from Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1 329 0003

During the Acts of Vengeance, Loki created the Tri-Sentinel by combining the remains of Sebastian Shaw's Sentinels Mk IV, V, and VI. Loki and Shaw sent the Tri-Sentinel to kill Spider-Man, believing Spider-Man's unfamiliarity with the Sentinels would work in their favor. However, unbeknownst to them, Spider-Man ended up gaining full control over the power of Captain Universe, which eventually helped him to defeat it.[1]

A time later, the Tri-Sentinel would appear again to fight Spider-Man now without his cosmic powers.[2] With the help of Nova they eventually melted the Tri-Sentinel's head with a piece of Antarctic Vibranium, defeating it forever this time.[3]

  • With three faces and six arms as well as a hostile disposition, the Tri-Sentinel resembles the Asura demigods of Buddhism. Asuras are created through the reincarnation of people who possessed uncontrolled actions and emotions. They are often portrayed as demons who are constantly involved in violence and struggle. Whether this was intentional or deliberate by its creators is unknown.
